Please see the job posting for an immediate Postdoctoral Position at SSRL for in-situ Catalysis X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy


Postdoctoral Position at SSRL for in-situ Catalysis X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy The Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL), a Directorate of the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford University, and a national research facility, seeks a Ph.D. Postdoctoral Scholar. This 2-3 year postdoctoral position will involve using in-situ/in-operando synchrotron-based methods, primarily x-ray absorption spectroscopy, to study all aspects of catalysis. The candidate will join a new group at SSRL, under the guidance of Simon Bare, whose mission is to develop a world-class synchrotron catalyst characterization facility. The candidate will work on beamline setup and data collection at SSRL, perform in-situ XAS experiments, and analyze the XAFS data. The candidate will also give instruction on data analysis to graduate students. The candidate will interact with visiting and staff scientists from SUNCAT and other leading research groups, postdoctoral fellows, and students on all aspects of the synchrotron-mediated research; provide guidance to and foster the development of graduate and undergraduate students; publish experimental results in scientific journals and present results at scientific meetings; and maintain a safe working environment in the laboratory. Qualifications: * Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, materials sciences or related fields. * Experience with all aspects of synchrotron X-ray absorption spectroscopy is a must, including demonstrated ability in data analysis and modeling of XAFS data using Athena/Artemis. * Experience with synthesis, testing or characterization of catalysts, desired. * A solid background in materials/catalyst characterization and experience with in-situ cell design and development strongly preferred. * Willingness to learn and bridge knowledge/experience gaps. * Ability to work independently and in a team environment. * Ability to work and communicate effectively with a diverse population; good interpersonal skills are essential. * Effective written and verbal communication skills.
